Girls Football vs Woodland View Primary
Our girls’ football team played their first league game of 2019 this week beating Woodland View Primary School 8-0! Superb performances from all the girls and particularly from Cassie, Milana and girl of the game Denaii.
Children from Year 4 and 5 attended a Cross Country event at King George V Park in Mansfield last Saturday. It was our best performance at a Cross Country event yet with brilliant runs from both boys and girls, and standout performances from Lily M who finished 3rd and Sophia who finished 16th out of over 98 runners in the girls race. Keep on running BOPS!
We managed to put together a handball team to represent the school at a tournament this week at Joseph Whitaker School. The children may not have scored highly against the five schools in the whole district who entered the tournament but their attitudes were superb with some children going along to play having never played the sport before! We like to give everything a go at BOPS and we are really proud of you for giving it a try.
Year 2 Futsal
For some of our Year 2s, it was their first experience of wearing the BOPS sports kit when they represented the school in a Futsal Tournament this week. Although scoring wasn’t taken into account at the tournament, we did note that one of our teams never lost a game! There were so many year 2s who wanted the chance to represent the school that we entered two teams into the event. Anyone who was disappointed this time will be given priority at the next sporting event for Year 2s. There will be many chances in the future!
Upper School Plant Sale
Upper School have been learning from the Blidworth Allotment Association and have grown their own range of plants in the school allotment and Polly-tunnel. They held a plant sale outside school on Thursday this week and managed to raise £61 Upper School have opted to donate all money raised to The Ear Foundation.
Middle School Production
This year’s Middle School Easter Performance was a musical extravaganza! It celebrated the many talents of all of the children in Middle School as well as giving us a walk through many great names in the music hall of fame. The performance was excellent and we were so proud of Year 3 and 4 and the effort they put in. Lots of tears were noted in the audience!
Year 5 Mansfield Town Football Tournament
Well done to the Year 5s who came third place in the Mansfield Town Year 5 Football Tournament last week. A great result!
Mother’s Day Dinners
Thank you to everyone (mums, dads, sisters, brothers, grannies, nannies and aunties) who managed to get to our Mother’s Day Dinners last week. We hope you enjoyed having a dinner with your children and we hope you got truly spoiled on the real Mother’s Day!
BOPS High 5 Reward Afternoon and Camp
The theme for this term’s reward afternoon and camp was a ‘Bake Off’. Children worked in teams to design and make their own cookies. The most important part – tasting – then followed before scores were added up and winners announced! The BOPS events were a huge success and we are already looking forward to the High 5 events in the Summer Term: The Annual BOPS Water Fight!
BOPS Full House Bingo Night
Our first ever evening BINGO night took place in our hall last Friday. Pie and pea supper and licensed bar set the scene for a great night of bingo with some brilliant prizes won. Thank you to the amazing Friends of Blidworth Oaks Primary, our parents fundraising group, for organising this event and thankyou to everyone who came along and supported it. We are well and truly off the mark on the way to raising money for our Mini Bus!
Have a fantastic Easter!
